Locals providing Oyster Cards for refugees
You can now buy an oyster card and put some money on it. We know that asylum seekers and refugees live on very small amounts of money and they struggle with cost of transport transport. We have been told stories of people unable to attend medical appointments or being forced to walk miles to attend meetings with officials. South London Refugee Association will distribute the cards for us.
You can either pop the oyster card in the post to South London Refugee Association Merton, Vestry Hall, London Road, Mitcham CR4 3UD or drop it into Londis, 34 Crown Lane, Morden (opposite civic centre). Anil and Rashpal Patel, in Londis, are happy to collect them for us. Please stick a post-it note on the card telling us how much money is on it.
